In Resident Evil: Village Shadows of Rose, you’ll need to solve the painting puzzle in the Gallery of Castle Dimitrescu to get a very important item. These paintings represent predators and prey, but when you are first able to enter the gallery, you’ll find one is missing. Here’s how to find the missing painting and which pairs are correct.
How to solve the Predation Gallery painting puzzle in Shadows of Rose
To solve the painting puzzle in Shadows of Rose, you need to do two things:
- Find the missing painting
- Solve the gallery puzzle by matching predators with prey
Find the missing painting
Fortunately, locating the missing picture is easy. After you get the Silver Mask, you have to flee upstairs through the door in the Hall of Ablution. When you make it there, exit the hall, turn right and enter the Guest Room.
After the conversation with Michael, leave the Guest Room via the double doors. Sitting on a table just outside the room is the Snake Painting you require.
Gallery painting puzzle solution
There are six paintings you must match up to solve the gallery puzzle in Shadows of Rose:
The clue on the plague tells us:
“The predators stand united, each staring down their prey.”
So, we know that all the predators need to be on one side and all the prey on the other. You can’t remove two of the paintings, the wolves and the butterfly, so we know which side is which. Now we just need to think it out.
This gives us the solution:
- Butterfly > Spider
- Frog > Snake
- Sheep > Wolves
Solving the puzzle gets you the Triocular Key, which is what you need to get the final mask.
